Question about Computers & Internet
I hope you can help or steer in the right direction to solve my problem. I have a Sahara laptop, which is a South African company name, I have found out that essentially it is a Quanta model. Checked for a site with not much luck to look for new drives. What my problem is, is the hdd. I originally had a 40GB Hitachi hdd in. That ones circut board failed and had to the replace the hdd though there are no longer any of these around due to age and so got a 80gb Western Digital, now it no longer finds the optical drive. Any ideas and seggestions very welcome. Brendan
The problem with these laptops is that they are very picky about what hard drives they like. If you are looking for a Bios upgrade, try http://freenet-homepage.de/nuschii/KN1BIOS/. I have a seagate ST9100823A (100Gb) and it works fine. I have tried a WD3200BEVE (320Gb) and it works in one machine but not both. The Seagate works in both of my machines.

The ram will probably be no problem, the hard drive you will need to get a list of specific hard drives that will work in this machine. Processor I am sure will be able to be done as the unit I am using is centrino 2ghz. But be warned if you purchase just any hard drive you will more than likely need to purchase an external CD rom drive as was my only option I ended up doing to be able to continue using it

I have a sahara KN1 laptop for the past 2 years but experience no problem.I want to upgrade it from 40GB to 100GB, 256MB to1024MB and processor from 1,70GHz to 2.00GHZ. Will any upgrade work on it, or do you need specific accesssories, and what will be the negative and positive out come of the upgrade.

Older motherboards like the one in your laptop may have a size limit on the hard drive. Maybe there is a bios update for the laptop to fix this issue. you will find that at the manufacturers website under downloads/support.
